Thread Name: Lyr Add: Songs from HMS Pinafore
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: HMS Pinafore 'A Maiden Fair to See'
Thanks for posting, Chico. I liked this song when I first heard it, at about age 13. The version I heard started with "A maiden fair to see."
It's a beautiful melody, and I still sing it sometimes.
Recently I went to a performance of the Mikado. The second half started with a lovely piece called "The Sun Whose Rays." It is nice for piano or flute.
